Teapot...Steak Knives...Vintage Bunny...Macrame Hanger

It's just so weird how one minute I can feel pretty darn good and the next I can't stay on my feet. It's nothing like before I went into the hospital, though. At least now I have a decent day now and then. This past week was a bit annoying, one of things I deal with along with many, many others is fatigue. And I don't mean just tired, I mean the type that puts you horizontal for a while. I have conceded to it because I have learned that I cannot push through it. If I try, I just get sicker and it last longer. Yesterday was one of those days, I gave in and went to bed.

I no longer envy people who have things I want, like a certain house or lots of money. Walking through the grocery store the other day, it occurred to me how it felt like I was sleep walking, watching and envying people who looked like they felt normal.

Thank goodness I discovered meditation! It helps a lot. It helps me sleep a little better, waking up every 15 - 30 minutes all night long is no fun. Meditating does help.

Here's to hoping tomorrow is a wonderful, healthy day.

Baked Quinoa And Chicken Parmesan and New Etsy Items

It was a crazy week last week. I am so ready for the tides to turn. We got up one morning and the pond was empty of water, about an inch left. Fortunately, we caught it in time and was able to save all the fish. We still have no idea where the water went??? We couldn't find where it ran out, no sign of it leaking out anywhere. We took the liner out of the ground washed it and set it on the concrete patio and filled it with water, waited about an hour, not a drop of water leaked out. 

After putting it back in the ground and filling it and treating the water, we put the fish back in. Around 10:30 that night I went out to check and our biggest Koi had jumped out and was laying almost on the patio. No movement whatsoever! I picked him up and put him in the water, he started sinking immediately. I picked him back up and held him in the water, talking to him and massaging him for 2 1/2 hours, and finally, his tail moved a tiny bit. I just kept massaging him and talking to him, probably another 30 min. later he moved a fin just slightly. After another two hours on my knees of talking and massaging him, he started moving around a little. He still could not swim without going on his side. But with more work, he started swimming. It was 5:30 a.m. in the morning when I came in the house. Good news, he made it. He is doing great! I couldn't walk after spending the entire night bent over and on my knees, but I sure felt great knowing he made it. 

I'm a firm believer that touch and words can heal!

I was actually looking forward to September. August was an awful month. Everything in the house and outside the house broke. I was all hyped up about September being a turn for the better, only to get up and find the pond was empty this morning. Fortunately, we caught it early enough that as of yet, we have lost no fish. We took the tub out and cleaned it and put some water back in and can find no holes or leaks? Hopefully, this was just a left over from the month of August. I'm tired.
